Redux 2 (5x03)
written by Chris Carter
BLEVINS: Agent Mulder, we are here informally to give you the chance to help yourself.
MULDER: Help myself, how?
SENIOR AGENT: By allowing any fact or details which might serve to let us go forward with this inquiry in a more informed manner.
MULDER: That helps you, how doesn't that help me?
ELDER: We're too vulnerable. Our man in the FBI is exposed, what Mulder may have seen could expose our plans.
CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: What Mulder's seen only serves us. Serves to ensure our plans. Mulder's in trouble, he needs help, and we can give it to him.
ELDER: In exchange for?
CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: His new loyalty. To us. As I've said all along, Mulder's much more valuable to us alive.
BILL JR.: You really believe this crap, don't you?
MULDER: Yes, I do.
BILL JR.: You see, she's your big defender, but I think the truth is, she just doesn't want to disappoint you.
MULDER: If it works, I don't care what you think she thinks.
BILL JR.: You're a real piece of work, you know that, Mr. Mulder.
MULDER: Why is that, because I don't think the way you think? Because I won't just sit passively back and watch the family tragedy unfold?
BILL JR.: You're the reason for it. And I've already lost one sister to this quest you're on, now I'm losing another. Has it been worth it? To you, I mean, have you found what you've been looking for?
WAITRESS: Tobassco sauce. Cures anything.
MULDER: What do you want from me? You give me these things, the only things I ever wanted and I can't think of any reason for you to do so.
CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: Well that's true, no act is completely selfless.
CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: I'm offering you a chance to know the truth.
MULDER: In exchange for what?
CIGARETTE-SMOKING MAN: Quit the FBI, come work for me. I can make your problems go away.
MULDER: No deal.
SCULLY: I fight and I fight and I fight... But I'm so stupid. I've come so far in my life on simple faith, and now when I need it the most I just push it away. I mean, why ... why do I wear this [cross]? Why do I wear this, Mom? I put something that I don't even know or understand under the skin of my neck.
MULDER: Scully, I can't let you take the blame. Because of your brother, because of your mother, and because I couldn't live with it. To live the lie, you have to believe it. Like these men who deceive us, who gave you this disease. We all have our faith, and mine is in the truth.
SCULLY: Then why'd you come here if you'd already made up your mind?
MULDER: Because I knew you'd talk me out of it if I was making a mistake.
SENIOR AGENT: Did you shoot Scott Ostlehoff? Employee of the Department of Defense?
MULDER: I will answer that question, Sir.
SENIOR AGENT: Answer the question asked, Agent Mulder!
MULDER: I will answer the question after I name the man!
SENIOR AGENT: AGENT MULDER!
MULDER: I will answer that question after I name the man who's responsible for Agent Scully! The same man who directed that my apartment be surveilled by the DoD. A man I want to see prosecuted for his crimes! Who's sitting in this very room as I speak!
SENIOR AGENT: Agent Mulder, the Section Chief asked you a question, you are going to answer!
MULDER: I can't do that sir.
SENIOR AGENT: You can and you will!
MULDER: I can't do that sir, because the Section Chief is the man I'm about to name!
